  1. #1 Life on Mars? 
    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - NASA officials say plans for the Phoenix Mars Lander's second day of activities on Mars have been delayed.
    They say it's because of a problem in relaying communications from one of two Mars orbiters relaying commands from Earth. Fuk Li, manager of the Mars exploration program for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., says that a "transient event" on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter turned its UHF radio off. That stopped communications between it and the lander.

    If there is life on Mars, it came from Earth on earlier spacecraft.

    The coolest name ever:

    Fuk Li

    But I don't think Fuk will find much life on Mars, maybe a few rocks or so. We'll see.

    I think if there were aliens on Mars, we'd know about it by now.

    Yes. I don't really like Li/Lee/Leigh all that much.

    Point. Like in the Austin Power movies, one of them:

    Fuk Mi Fuk Yu


    :)

    There are no aliens on Mars. They are native. The aliens would be us.

    I am so interested in the Mars mission. Those first pictures from the Phoenix are awesome. I have noticed that the Nasa website updates fairly regularly.

    They are pretty thorough in sterilizing what they send up, but it's possible.

    There are no aliens on Mars. Maybe one day, when we start growing beans up there, but right now there are no jobs to take from hard working Martians.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad
